Why Give to Bound for Glory Camp
The need to help students with literacy instruction is desperately apparent. The inability to read is directly linked to poverty, dependence on welfare, unemployment, and crime. Children who are both from lower-income families and who struggle with literacy skills face an enormous battle to flourish academically and ultimately to survive in today's society.
*40% of 4th graders can't read proficiently
*85% of juvenile offenders have a reading difficulty
*57% of students with reading difficulties leave school without a diploma
*61% of low-income families do not have any books in their homes for children
*Low-income students lose about 2 months of reading achievements during the summer due to lack of summer learning opportunities.
Bound for Glory will provide the opportunity for students to sharpen their literacy skills, learn outside of a classroom, discover talents, grow their self-confidence, and profit from experiences that will help shape their lives. Please join us in this all important endeavor.
